I actually messaged just about everybody in the organization via the TACA website a couple years ago and got absolutely zero response from them. They don't reach out to West TN whatsoever which is why, before Chris came to Germantown, most of us had never even heard of good tournaments. The teams th...

Re: Vanderbilt S.P.O.O.K.Y. Tournament '15 (10/31/15)

I want to say that, although the Vanderbilt quizbowl organization doesn't host as frequently as we all would like, the tournaments that it has hosted have been extremely helpful in bringing teams together to compete on a statewide field in an otherwise quizbowl-barren state. Rohan has talked to me f...

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

Our quiz bowl circuit is growing, but we need more people to emphasize that NAQT questions do not take more time and that they have better questions than the one line trivia that we mostly see here. This is why we are hosting the Germantown Fall Invitational, which will be held on September 19th at...

That being said, I think that YA lit is acceptable in maybe SCOP or IS-A sets at best, but past that, it gets ...
